The following policies were created to maintain the facilities and to assure that the activities taking place are in line with the mission of the Division of Student Affairs and John Carroll University. Please note the priority order for reservations: student groups, FSA departments for professional use and then FSA personal use!

  1. Priority is always given to student groups, JCU departments (professional use) and then JCU community members (personal use).
  2. The same group/individual cannot use the facilities more than once a month.
  3. Groups must reserve the facilities at least a day apart for housekeeping purposes.
  4. There is no cost for student organizations and/or university departments (professional use only) for use of the facilities, unless linens or wood is requested. The cost for linens is $5 per set and the cost for wood is $60 per bundle. For overnight stays, check in is 4pm and check out is 10am. For daytime retreats, check in is 8am and check out is 6pm. Special arrangements must be approved in advance and additional charges may apply. Payment is due when the keys and Event Evaluation and Checklist form are turned in to the VPSAO.
  5. A JCU advisor must be present for the entire duration of the event. The advisor is responsible for upholding all university and facility policies. Advisors must read and sign the Advisor Responsibility Form, located at the bottom of this page.
  6. Alcoholic beverages are not permitted. Violations will be handled through the disciplinary process. Organizations, advisors and individuals will be processed accordingly.
  7. This property is an extension of John Carroll and the same rules apply governing alcohol and illegal substances as stated in the Community Standards Manual.
  8. All activities must be in accordance with the missions of the Division of Student Affairs and John Carroll University. The VPSAO reserves the right to refuse approval if the event and/or its activities are not seen in the best interest of students and our mission.
  9. For safety, security and maintenance purposes, pets are not allowed.
  10. Groups and/or persons who do not follow these policies may lose the privilege to use these facilities.
